LNP Member for Mudgeeraba Ros Bates MP said following years of Labor inaction, local ‘People Power’ had finally won in the Numinbah Valley.

“For the third time, residents have come out and supported this initiative by signing a postcard petition but unfortunately through three consecutive Labor Police Ministers and the Labor Minister for Main Roads, even though our community has fought tooth and nail to get these much-needed improvements, the silence is deafening from Labor.” Ms Bates said.

“The LNP today committed $300,000 for CCTV cameras, installation of lighting, bollards to prevent hoons congregating and a traffic island on both Pine Creek Road and Nerang-Murwillumbah Road, if elected in October.

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government is soft on crime and only a future LNP Government will throw the book at hoons.”

Numinbah Valley resident Peter Yaun said the renewed effort to stop speeding was needed for the Hinterland.

“Hoons run amok out here out, and we are sick of it,” said Mr. Yaun.

“Ros has championed this cause for us for years, and Labor won’t do a thing until someone is killed.”

“Hoons burn their tyres after they shred them and it is a fire risk for residents in Springbrook, the Numinbah Valley and the Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre.”
